Flower - Potted Plant - Crochet Pattern


    Potted Plant - Flower

    Always green, always blooming, always pretty. :) And all that without watering. Even the location doesn't matter to this low-maintenance plant: sunny, shady, total darkness... From what other flower can you say that? :)

    It even brings its own soil. Which, by the way, can be individually fitted to a pot of your liking. Tips on how to find the perfect size for your pot can be found within this pattern as well, of course.

    Oh, and don't panik, this flower can be made almost without any kind of sewing! The petals and leaves are crocheted on during the pattern. So they always sit perfectly in place.

    Skill Level:
    easy to medium

    The size depends on your gauge, chosen type of yarn and crochet hook size. I'm using Puppets Lyric yarn (8/8, DK/Light-Worsted) from Coats and a 3 mm hook. With that I get the following size/s: 17 cm (the part above the soil)
